Travel to Morocco in Winter

Travel to Morocco in Winter
Most people think of Morocco’s hot deserts with golden dunes, it’s bustling outdoor markets, nighttime street food vendors, and sunny beaches. And while travel to Morocco in Spring and Summer is considered the best time of year, travel to Morocco in winter has its own virtues, not the least of which it’s an easy 7-hour flight from New York to plan an exotic adventure during the holidays. From November through February, everywhere tends to be more tranquil (outside of the Christmas-New Year’s holiday when advance booking is required), where the best boutique accommodations and small villages make for truly private getaways. Located in the northern hemisphere with the high Atlas Mountains running through it, Morocco is cool and wet from November-February, but not so much so that it prevents you from doing anything you do in spring or summer with the exception of high elevation trekking the mountains. Overall, conditions change...

Advice for Traveling to Morocco, from a Wild Alum

Advice for Traveling to Morocco, from a Wild Alum
Three-time Wildland Adventures alumni Tom & Patti Saunders recently returned from a 13-day exploration of Morocco that roamed from the medinas of Fez and Marrakech to the serene oceanside town of Essouira to the oases and kasbahs of the Skoura Valley to the windswept dunes of Erg Chebbi They even emailed us in the midst of their journey to share their happiness:“For now, just a quick email to thank you. This trip has truly been amazing. We've just arrived in Marrakech and I have to let you know that the accommodations, choice of route, guides, our exceptional driver Kamal, our camel in the Sahara, the Atlas Mountains experience, and every day of this tour, could not have been better. What an experience. Enchanting!” Descriptions don’t do Morocco justice but the Saunders’ comments about traveling there should be inspiration for everyone.

What's so different about Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco?

What's so different about  Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco?
I recently had the opportunity to answer that great question: "What's so different about  Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco?" What we do in Morocco (and everywhere else in the world for that matter) is individual and personalized, much different than virtually all other tour companies running adventure trips in Morocco. Our driver/escorts, and local guides we meet up with along the way, will not take Wildland travelers to places without asking. For example, before setting out each morning our lead driver/guide, Kamal  Abdelfadil, will show you where you've already traveled, where you are planning to go and do that day,and what your options are to see and do. So, the extent to which you do some additional research as we are planning your itinerary, or simply in anticipation of your trip to Morocco, it will help you to have an idea of places you would like to see. You will be...
